    Ethernet Connections with XP Pro?

    Well I built a new computer that has the ASUS P4P800 Deluxe motherboard, which has onboard LAN. I want to transfer files from my old computer to my new one. It has some soft of PCI ethernet card. Both systems are running windows xp pro. I bought a crossover cable, but had no idea how to set it up. I went to microsoft's website to look for answers, but I just ended up getting lost in millions of pages. Please help me out if you can.

    Plug it in and make sure file sharing is enabled.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    How? I thought I tried that and it didn't seem to work.

    If you check the Device Manager on each PC, are the NICs showing up as being installed properly?

    Hi

    The way I remember doing it it is to run Network Setup Wizard on each XP box you have there keeping in mind that you'll have to give a unique name to every pc but have them in one same workgroup.

    A quick search gave me THIS
    Come cast your shadow over me
    and I'll cast mine all over thee
    Take me away, into the shades
    where there is no light of day
